We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

Development Requirements

The Canal & River Trust is a major land owner with unique portfolio of properties throughout the England and Wales, along with developing the Trust's own portfolio the development team is looking to identify and procure new opportunities for future development and investment.

What we are looking for:

  • Cleared or occupied sites/premises adjacent to our waterways previous acquisitions have included multi-let industrial estates, office/retail accommodation and green field sites
  • We are interested in acquiring sites with no existing planning consent, although we would discuss any opportunities with our joint ventures in case there is a direct development angle
  • Sites effected by contaminated/environmental issues would be considered
  • Short-term income, or at least a mechanism to mitigate any holding costs, will be particularly attractive

We deliver the majority of our developments with our joint venture vehicles.

If you would like to discuss an opportunity or require any further details please contact Richard Robins, regeneration development manager on the contact details below:
